Wills, Trusts & Probate
Life can pass you by in a blink of an eye. Even though sometimes, we should experience our lives to its fullest, each and every day, a small break from your daily schedule may assure that you leave your loved ones with the financial security that they will remember you for. Putting your wishes on how your estate will be devised may be complicated and complex. You want to draft your own will, but you want to do it correctly. Drafting a will on your own may lead to more serious problems such as your local probate judge unable to enforce the contents of your will. But even worse, your local probate judge enforcing your will according to State and not according to your wishes. Your will falls asunder. What now! It is too late. Don’t let this happen to you. Your loved ones will deserve better. They will remember your kindness because you took a small amount of time out of your daily schedule to leave them with your wishes in a properly drafted testamentary document, whether it be a will or a testamentary trust.
Wills are indeed the most basic method of devising your will. You want to draft your will now and cost-effectively. But did you know that there is a way to only pay your attorney once? Because a testamentary trust, once you have an executed testamentary trust and appoint a Trustee, you can entrust your Trustee to devise your wishes immediately upon your passing. That means that you don’t have to pay your attorney a second time around to probate your wishes in a probate court. Drafting is just one step towards completing life-changing task of planning for your estate. You also have to think about how you wish to be taken care of and designating someone you trust or love once you are unable to make those decisions if you become incapacitated. You can have some piece of mind that you can plan out these decisions as well. With the combination of a living will and a designation of healthcare surrogacy, you will be able to remove life-sustaining treatment,
Credit Card Defense
Are You Being Sued?
Have you received a notice that your credit card company is suing you? You have only 20 days to file a written response to the lawsuit and file it with the clerk of the court in the county where you reside. You can defend your own case or hire an attorney. If you do decide in defending your own complaint, you should first start by reading the complaint carefully. Pay special attention to items such as the reason why they are suing you, when and where to file your answer. Most importantly, don’t forget that you only have 20 days to file your answer. If you fail to file on time or respond insufficiently, the court may enter a default judgment against you. Defaults may lead to garnishment of wages, bank account levies, and property liens.
Here are some important things to note if you are defending yourself:
Don’t state the reason why you couldn’t pay the bill. The court is only there to determine whether you paid the bill or not. Stating the reasons why you didn’t pay will be seen as an admission of guilt. Answer each and every question or statement made by the credit card company. List the applicable defenses in your answer. Here are some defenses
- Statute of limitations
- Improper service
- Failure of the creditor to prove they own the debt
- Debt discharged in bankruptcy
- Identity fraud
- Failure to give credit for payment
- Unfair debt collection

What is the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)?
Telephone Consumer Protection ACT, otherwise known as TCPA, is a federal statute, which regulates collection companies by limiting the use of automatic dialing systems and prerecorded messages. Any company contacts you in this manner, you may be entitled to anywhere from $500 and $1,500 in statutory damages, this is as long as the company has not obtained your consent or permission to call you. In many cases, the auto-dialed call doesn't have to be a prerecorded message, it can come in a short pause, a beep, a short hold and then a telephone representative coming on the line to speak with you.
However, if you originally provided your telephone number to an original creditor, then they have the right to call/contact you. Additionally, once they have contacted you and you ask them to stop calling you and continue to do so, this may be a violation of TCPA. If companies are not intending to call you specifically but to go on a fishing expedition to find information about the telephone number and former owner of that telephone number, this may also be an instance of a TCPA violation.
Regain your peace of mind from telephone harassment. Your time is valuable! Your line should be free so you can use your phone to call your loved ones, conduct business and also use it for important emergencies. If you think you have a TCPA claim, please contact me to find out whether you can receive monetary compensation for this harassment.
